Sunday December 3, 2017  

 On this first Sunday of the month our Coming of Age class is invited to attend the 10:00am service (not only as SHYP youth) but to specifically observe worship with COA leaders, SHYP advisors and staff.

COA youth are invited to sit with leaders/advisors and older SHYP youth in Austin Transept and to meet for discussion with peers and adults at Fellowship Hour.

 ALL SHYP youth are invited to worship this week and older youth are invited to join Fellowship Hour conversation with Coming of Age class!!

Thank you to our Grades 3-4 class for supporting worship as greeters and for hosting our Fellowship Hour this Sunday-a colorful plan for offerings is in place!


Coming of Age also meets this Sunday evening (12/3) from 6:30-8:30pm.

Welcome Visitors!

Most of our morning classrooms are open and welcoming to visitors. If you know that your child will visit, we encourage you to contact Sally Liebermann (Director of Lifespan Religious Education) at dlre.uureading (at) gmail (dot)com so that we are ready to welcome your family. We do offer occasional classes that require prior Parent Orientation before children attend- please contact Sally for details. When visiting kindly complete a Family Visitor Card (available from ushers) and provide important information that will allow us to safely include your children in our activities. You may deliver the card to staff or classroom leaders when accompanying your child to class. 




This page will be updated each week.
